All Y'all Knew It Was Too Good To Be True

Just when we were being told it was safe to go on about our business:
Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), the ranking member of the House Budget Committee, tells National Review Online that House Democrats are planning to use the budget-reconciliation process in order to pass Obamacare. “They’re meeting with each other this weekend to pursue it,” says Ryan. “I’ve spoken with many Democrats and the message is this: They’re not ready to give up. They’ve waited their entire adult lives for this moment, and they aren’t ready to let 100,000 pesky votes in Massachusetts get in the way of fulfilling their destiny. They’ll look at every option and spend the next four or five days figuring it out.”

If that doesn't work, there is still the old-fashioned way:
A group of 25 House Democrats have begun circulating draft proposals for smaller bills that would not include an individual or employer mandate, any new entitlement programs, or a public option to compete with private insurers....

One election of one Senator is a great start, but this is a long uphill battle.

November will only get here if we continue to press our elected representatives every day until they either represent us or are replaced by those that will represent us.
